Das Walley Boot - Rc U-Boat

Not to scale, but a modified walley submarine from EBAY. U-99.

I'll see if I can get some pond photos also at a later time.

So you are saying that with more battery power the sub turns well while moving forward??

Yes, the 2500mah batteries (1.2volt) give enough power that I can turn while moving forward AND dive and move forward at the same time. The video of the U-Boat shows it diving and moving left and right. Its done in the tub cause the water is clear.
